Architecture: Books

Finding and accessing ebooks

University of Waterloo students, faculty and staff can find ebooks in Omni, the library's catalogue (login to Get Access from Anywhere first).

You can search the catalogue the same way you would for print books. Use the 'Waterloo online resources' link in the Advanced Search box to search ebooks only. You may also limit your book search results to 'Available online' from the left sidebar.

Or try searching in one of the ebook databases listed below.
